It is increasingly the case that members of the public go without the benefit of legal advice because of cuts in legal aid and the introduction of court fees that place assistance from the courts beyond the reach of many.
That is where the North West Legal Support Trust (NWLST) steps in. Over successive recent government administrations, there has been a squeeze on legal services. Lawyers are, of course, an easy target. Solicitors and barristers are preyed upon by tabloids and governments alike for being ‘fat cats’. The impact of these attacks has been that the public has been misled into a total misapprehension as to the role of lawyers in the lives of those who need their services.
The organisations supported by NWLST:
Central Chambers consider the Legal Walk 2017 to be a great opportunity to provide our support to those who cannot afford legal help.
The Manchester Legal Walk is a 10k walk around the perimeter of the city.
To those of you that already have kindly donated, we are very grateful. If you still wish to donate, you can do so by clicking here.
If you would like one of our bobble-hats, tough! They were for walkers only!
